NOVUS JOINS THE 5% CLUB

We’ve showcased our commitment to developing our people by joining The 5% Club, an industry-led initiative focused on driving momentum into the recruitment of apprentices, graduates, and sponsored students.

What is the 5% Club?

The 5% Club is a movement of more than 800 employers providing ‘earn and learn’ opportunities to develop the skills and talents people need to become more employable and create meaningful careers. Companies joining The 5% Club commit to raising the number of apprentices, sponsored students and graduates on formal programmes to 5% of their total workforce within five years. Members are also asked to publicly report their progress in their Annual Report. Existing members range from SMEs to FTSEs and cover all sectors including engineering, transport, and financial services.

The Club uses its platform, and record of success, to engage with policymakers and influencers on issues of concern and relevance, specifically increasing awareness and activity that links skills investment with discernible social impact.

Throughout our year of personal development, our apprentices continue to help us develop skills according to our needs, whilst creating a sustainable talent pipeline, attracting the best new talent and upskilling existing staff.

Each year we welcome an apprentice cohort to the Novus family and offer them the opportunity to gain a qualification whilst earning and learning about our business. Alongside this, throughout the year we identify several opportunities for our existing colleagues to join a development apprenticeship, themes include Data Analytics, Leadership and Management, Quantity Surveying and more.

Our People Development Manager, Zoe Thorpe commented:

 “Apprenticeships are a great way for colleagues to gain practical and applicable tools to become more effective at their role. “Apprenticeships are a great way for colleagues to gain practical and applicable tools to become more effective at their role. You can earn whilst you learn and get hands-on experience from the teams around you.

Gill Cronin, Director of Operations of The 5% Club said:

“We’re delighted to welcome Novus into membership. The 5% Club provides a fantastic network of HR and Learning & Development professionals, sharing and learning from each other.  All our members share an ethos of creating a skilled workforce through ‘earn and learn’ development programmes, helping people develop meaningful career paths.”
